Line-ups: Juventus-Atalanta

Juventus host Atalanta for their Scudetto celebrations with a real party atmosphere in Turin tonight.

It kicks off at 20.00 UK time (19.00 GMT), click here for a match preview.

The Bianconeri already had a preliminary party on Sunday afternoon, as Roma’s 4-1 defeat to Catania mathematically handed them the third consecutive Scudetto.

Atalanta are already safe from the threat of relegation and comfortable in mid-table, so both sides can play without worrying about the result.

The crowd is ready to be entertained and the Serie A trophy will be presented to the team after the game.

It is also the chance to put the bitterness of last week’s Europa League semi-final elimination to Benfica behind them, as Juve hadn’t won three Scudetti on the bounce since the 1930s.

Atalanta are without midfield string-puller Luca Cigarini due to suspension, while ‘bad boy’ striker Marko Livaja is in Croatia, as he was frozen out after abusing Atalanta fans on Facebook, the latest of several unsavoury incidents in his brief career.

German Denis leads the attack with Giacomo Bonaventura, who has been linked with summer moves to Juventus or Fiorentina, and the returning Maxi Moralez.

Atalanta have not beaten Juve in Serie A since 2001, while their last away victory was 1-0 in October 1989.
